After Install problem
I am using new hardware and tried to install the latest version of PFSENSE and when the system reboots it says that it cannot find the kernel. I have tried 3 different version of the install. I have tried Beta 1 Beta 2 and one of the alpha releases. I have also tried using a different IDE hard drive. The hardware that I am using is
Intel Celeron D 2.13
and 512 of PC2700 mem
I have disabled the onboard Serial, USB, SATA
I have been installing 3 Nexcom 1041c with 80GB WD HDDs today and was running
into the odd Installationproblem several people have reported. I've been
playing around with a lot of different things to make this work and here is
what solved the issue for me:
1. Set your HDD mode in BIOS to LBA (don't use "auto", the detected geometry is
different if it is set to auto and it fails; this was an award bios)
2. In the installation process uncheck "packet mode" (with checked packet mode
I ended up with kernel errors on bootup from hdd)
Thanks for the info. I will give that a try tonight.
We also have a troubleshooting page:
Please update it with any findings.
I just wanted to say thanks for the info. I made the changes from auto to LBA and unchecked packet mode and the system works great.
